The international shipping company, Vroon, has recently signed a fleetwide agreement with renowned training provider, Seagull Maritime. As responsible organisation in the shipping industry, Vroon believes they have an obligation to their customers and employees to implement a robust training scheme. Allowing their seafarers and onshore staff to sit at the top of the class and continue their personal and collective growth.
“Vroon has always been committed to safe practices and ensuring a duty of care for the safety and health of all employees and customers,” says Head Crewing, Diederic van Keulen, Vroon “We believe our continued success depends on the abilities and dedication of our staff and how we nurture each individual.
